Senator Ron Johnson asked Secretary of State Hillary Clinton a fairly simple question at this morning’s Senate Foreign Relations Committee session, attemping to confirm at long last whether last fall’s Benghazi terror attack was (1) a coordinated terror attack or (2) a protest gone bad.
His first mistake: expecting honesty from a Clinton!
Hilldawg is well-practiced at feigned indignation. She’s also not used to be questioned, barking back ”[w]hat difference would it make?” with the cameras rolling:
“With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans,” Clinton continued “Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?”
Well, Madam Secretary, “motive” is always pretty important in a criminal investigation! Particularly when the suspects and their co-conspirators are still at-large and actively threatening targets.
In this instance, since the subject matter lies within the realm of American foreign policy, it’s doubly important to ascertain motive; the President of the United States campaigned in every battleground state and on network television claiming to have crippled Al Qaeda for good! Clearly that was a self-serving lie. Clinton-esque, if you will.
So how can we be expected to entrust an administration with our safety when its officers aren’t the least bit concerned about the nature of the threats facing the country they’re charged to defend? Good grief…
